Nacogdoches reading festival coming soon

Nacogdoches, Texas (KETK) - Many of us wish to improve our reading skills or that we just had better skills all together
 
Students at Carpenter Elementary in Nacogdoches will be taking part in a summer reading festival to do just that.
 
Unit 65 productions will host the reading festival. Their goal is to improve the reading skills of carpenter elementary school students.
 
There is no cover charge, the cost of admission is to bring one book.
 
Nacogdoches ISD loves the idea of getting kids to improve their reading skills.
 
"We know that kids need to read 20 minutes every day to improve their reading skills and so we really want to push reading," said Linsey Taylor Carpenter Elementary School Librarian. "It doesn't have to be a solid 20 minutes it could be in increments, five minutes while you're waiting in line at the bank, but getting 20 minutes everyday is what our kids really need."
 
The festival will take place at Millard's Crossing on North Street in Nacogdoches and it will be on May 29th.
